Aggies falter in 2nd half, lose SEC debut

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Mike Gillislee ran for 83 yards and two touchdowns and No. 24 Florida shut down Texas A&M's offense in the second half in a 20-17 win on Saturday in the Aggies' first Southeastern Conference game after moving from the Big 12.

Florida trailed 17-10 at halftime after a first half where Texas A&M's offense under new coach Kevin Sumlin pretty much did what it wanted.

Things changed in the second half as the Gators clamped down and forced punts each of A&M's six possessions after the break.

Gillislee's second touchdown of the day on a 12 yard run put Florida up 20-17 early in the fourth quarter.

Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel threw for 173 yards and ran for 60 more, but he couldn't move A&M's offense after halftime.

    With the smallest enrollment in District 17-5A, and really across the entire classification, Lindale could use that as an excuse for a sub-par season. But under defensive coordinator, turned head coach Chris Cochran, that won't be the case.
